Turner then began to attack photographers in the pit by throwing water bottles, kicking equipment over and slapping freelancer Amy Harris in the face.
"I have worked many shows before, and I've had to deal with a band flinging water at the photographers, but I never expected this to happen," Harris explained.
"In the pit, the male to female ratio is about 20 to 1. There were way more men in that pit than women."
Harris has declined to file an assault charge against Turner and has insisted that her camera equipment was not damaged.> Odd Future are assholes, says producer Steve Albini> Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator: 'I'll be dead by 40'
